What's New in Version 2.2.55
Great Idea and Love the App when it works
Regardless of the following issues I think this app is beautifully designed and keeps the functionality minimalistic to do the core function well.
Issues in iOS 7.1 iPhone 5S:
1) App hangs when launched.
Fix: kill app and try again.
2) App does not seem to remember my login through Facebook day to day.
Fix: login again with Facebook connect. Previous bookmarks are restored.
3) Location Accuracy: just tried to find nearby business restaurant and it was unable to recommend the place I was just outside.
Fix: manual search was successful.
I'm sure that with any iOS update these types of things happen, so I'm not dinging them for standard bugs. But if this persists without an update soon, they will surely lose their core customers (myself included) and hurt their business.
Update crashes on login, tracks location even when off
I normally like this app - would give it 4 stars. But the new update is problematic.
First, it seems to crash on login. When I launched it today I found my saved restaurants gone. So I tried to login. On each attempt the app promptly crashed.
Second, and possibly more seriously, it that location services remains on ALWAYS, even when the app is CLOSED!!! I noticed the location arrow on even when I had nearly all my apps closed. I closed all if them, and it remained on. I then went into settings, turned off location for Matchbook, and the arrow disappeared.
I don't mind giving Matchbook my location when I'm using it - that's part of the appeal. But having it track my location all the time is a waste of resources at best, or truly creepy at worst.
Please fix these bugs, or I will be forced to remove the app entirely.
Long awaited update is out - and still crashes.
Downgrading to 1 star
Looks like old version corrupted it's own db and new version does not address it
App started crashing every time it is opened.
Looks like I lost my db.
5 star idea with 1.5 star implementation.
